GEELONG big man Esava Ratugolea will have to earn his AFL spot back via the VFL.

After being managed out of last week’s win over the Western Bulldogs, a three-goal performance on debut from Darcy Fort has kept the 20-year-old from an immediate return.

Joining Ratugolea in the VFL for the clash with standalone club Coburg is Charlie Constable and Darcy Fort.

Quinton Narkle, who was expected to be again missing with a hamstring injury, has been named.

VFL listed trio Campbell Floyd (Colac), Alex Cincotta (Newtown & Chilwell), and Paddy Dowling (St Mary’s) has been named on an extended interchange bench.

Dowling’s Saints teammate Kyle Reid is again 23rd man.

Geelong VFL coach Shane O’Bree will join K rock at 6pm Saturday for a recap of the clash with Coburg.
